I'm a portrait photographer based in Wenatchee, Washington. I’m a certified professional photographer and have been a professional photographer for over 25 years. I specialize in contemporary portraitures, couture style portraits, maternity, business headshots, and personal branding portraits.

When we work together my goal is to guide you through a photography experience where you feel not only at ease but feel absolutely amazing in front of my camera! My studio is a safe place where you can relax, be pampered, and leave the work to me.

Hello!
I'm Lynette, and I'm so happy you're here!

LET’s GET TO KNOW EACH OTHER:

 by beautiful light & authenticity...
and people who love life.

I'm inspired by you...

What I believe in most, is capturing those authentic moments, and creating beautiful legacy portraits that will hang on your walls for generations.

I love this journey that I am on, and the amazing people I am blessed to meet along the way. Visit my contact page to send me an email or give me a call about your desired portrait session.

I have been taking professional portraits since 2002 for a wide variety of clients. Many of the people I have photographed become friends for years to come. I love what I do and look forward to hearing from you and learning about your photography needs.

My dogs are my "fur kids". I have a black lab named Skyrah who’s 3 years old, and a chocolate lab Hudson who’s our rescue boy. You can follow their adventures on Instagram, along with their BFF Wyatt! Click here to view >

It doesn't get any better than quality time with family, and friends. The best moments are those when you're laughing so hard, your stomach muscles hurt… the next day because you had so much fun the day before. Some of my favorite memories are playing in the surf at the beach, laughing, and enjoying quality time with family and friends.

I'm a free spirit who still loves to take time to enjoy those unscripted moments of life. Snowball fights, water fights (of course with no camera gear in hand), playing on a tire swing, walking in the rain, and riding horses across an open field with hair blowing in the wind. I also love authentic moments with friends, and conversations that last for hours and you’ve lost track of time.

When I was a little girl summer lightning storms terrified me, and I would hide under the dining room table with our family cat. Now, when there’s a lightning storm, you will find me (in a safe location) capturing the storm with my camera. There's something magical and fascinating about watching them as they move through the sky.

I started collecting heart-shaped rocks in the fall of 2014 after my brother passed away from cancer. Seven days after he passed while walking on the beach at the Oregon Coast, heart-shaped rocks started to appear. The very first one I found had a crack right down the middle. Since then, I continue to find heart-shaped rocks, see shapes, clouds, and heart shadows. I believe those who have passed, watch over us and leave little signs as a reminder they are with us. #heartshapedrocksandasanddollar

The Oregon Coast is my sanctuary. We vacation yearly in a small town nestled on the coastline called Cape Kiwanda. It’s beautiful, serene, and relaxing. I love hiking the dunes at sunrise and sunset, sitting on this little nook of grass listening to the waves crash below. It makes the most unique sound. There is a freedom I find when I’m near the Ocean, my soul is peaceful, and my spirit is free. The best part of our vacation, it's dog friendly, and the fur kids join us on the adventures.

I studied ballet when I was very young and several years later while living in Portland I rediscovered my love of dance. I love the music, the graceful movements, and the creative artistry. I have since discovered a passion for blending my love of dance, and photography – photographing ballet performers on stage, and in my studio fuels my soul.

In 2018, I created the Ryder Safe Foundation in memory of our beloved chocolate lab Ryder, who lost his life to "dog collar strangulation," and in honor of Skyrah who survived the accident. We provide dog collar safety awareness and education. We recommend you never kennel/crate your dog with a collar on, remove collars during play, and when dog(s) are left home alone unattended to prevent collar strangulation. Visit www.RyderSafeFoundation.com to learn more about our mission.

I love horses! I've connected with them before I could walk. I was blessed to share this journey for 14 years with my amazing soul horse "Owyhee", who crossed the rainbow bridge a few years ago. I learned many valuable lessons on my journey with him. He was a rescue horse, who in turn, rescued me. He is forever etched on my heart, along with our 4 labradors who have passed.

Wenatchee is a beautiful place to live! Majestic waterfalls, glacier-fed lakes, hiking trails, and many mountain adventures. During the off-season, I love to hike, explore, and appreciate the beauty around me. On one of my hikes, we came within 9 feet from a black bear and her cub who were eating berries in some bushes just off the hiking trail. We photographed her for an hour! Ask me more...
